Okay Capy fans! It is time to think about next year’s Capybara Madness Calendar!
The first thing we have to answer is who should be in it?
The first part of that question is obvious. Let’s look at it month-by-month:
- Cover – ?
- January – ?
- February – Dobbye Winnick (it’s his birthday)
- March – Garibaldi Rous (it’s my birthday)
- April – ?
- May – ?
- June – ?
- July – Caplin Rous (it’s his birthday)
- August – ?
- September – ?
- October – ?
- November – ?
- December – ?
So three months are already covered. The question is what to do with the others. Should they all be me or should be split them between me and wild capybaras in Brazil, or should they all be wild capybaras? Or do some of you even think the whole calendar should be wild capybaras?
I NEED YOUR FEEDBACK!
Please use the pool on the right sidebar to let me know what you think!
In the choices “Gari” stands for what you see above, Gari + Dobbye + Caplin.
Oh, and you can also use comments, but the poll is very important so don’t comment and not vote on the poll.
Thanks for your help!
A lone capybara
This is the third in my series of blog posts about my recent trip to the Pantanal in Brazil. You can follow these links to the previous posts:

This post is going to focus on an interaction we saw between a jaguar and a capybara. Please remember to click on the image to see a larger version.
If you are interested in taking a similar trip, I highly recommend Ailton Lara of Pantanal Nature.

Why did the capybara cross the road?
Today’s blog post features photos of a large group of capybaras that we spotted when a few of them crossed the Pantaneira Highway, as shown in the photo above. So rather than being all birds, this post is all capys. Hope you enjoy the photos. Continue reading “Pantanal Nature Part 2” »
A road less traveled
If you’ve been following this blog then you know that my daughter Coral and I recently returned from a trip to Brazil where we went in search of wild capybaras. I’m happy to tell you that we found them! And much more. Brazil is a fascinating place with amazing wildlife and wonderful people. We could not have had a better trip. A lot of that is due to our guide, Ailton Lara, of Pantanal Nature who made sure we saw plenty of capybaras but also did not skimp on the other wildlife. I can’t cover the whole adventure in a single blog post so here is the first part. It’s not all capybaras but I hope you will enjoy it anyway.

Melly and Coral are FINALLY back from Brazil! I know I should be happy, but I was a little mad too. How could they go off and leave me just to see wild capybaras? Am I not better than any wild capy? Do they not love me more? And the whole time they were gone, no one went swimming with me! Sure, my Rick kept me company in the pool but not for very long and he only leans over the side, he never comes in the water. Continue reading “They’re Back!” »
